No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I dedicate this recipe to “Her Highness and All-Wise Ruler of the Universe.” That’s not her real title, but she seems to think it is. Because she inspired this recipe, I’ll go with it. Just this once.  It all began on a group chat between Princess Leviathan, Music-Rocking Nomad, and “Her Highness and All-Wise Ruler of the Universe.” (Yes, they…

Gluten-Free Vanilla Almond Cookies

Food opinions are as dividing as a game of Monopoly. We as humans enjoy our food a certain way, and it’s shocking to hear others eat it differently. Take, for example, the pineapple on pizza feud.

Squash Pear Soup

Toronto has committed a false spring. The weather became warmer, the snow melted, and I was feeling ready for summer. Except it stormed a few days later, the air is frigid, and hand lotion can no longer heal my dry skin. In other words, Toronto pulled a “hey, you want spring? Here’s spring! Yeah, you want…

Carob “Hot Chocolate”

Don’t judge me. During a casual conversation with my sister-in-law, I mentioned that I like waffles, to which she replied, “You…

Many adults like to think themselves young at heart, but some are young in appearance as well. I happen to fall into the latter category. Here’s a rule to live by: Never assume age. Whether you guess too young or too old, it can be offensive. Too many times I met someone new and they…
